"The Big Bang Theory" star Mayim Bialik opened up to Parade on Thursday about her recent split, and what it's like going through divorce in the public eye.
“People need to realize that celebrities are people too," she said. "I think it’s important for people to realize that it’s very appreciated to get virtual support, but there’s also a tremendous amount of privacy that’s important for every human being.”
Bialik was married to Michael Stone for nine years before she announced their divorce on her blog in November 2012. She wrote: "Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly." The pair have two kids together.
The actress also told Parade that she's been blogging about the split in order to help other people who are going through something similar.
"I’ve tried to strike a really careful balance between writing just because I can, and writing with the purpose of educating other people about an experience that I hope will be helpful to them," she said. "I’m doing a series of posts on the Jewish aspect of divorce that a lot of people may not know about."
